If you’re searching for natural remedies for pain and inflammation, you might be considering the following:
How do you choose between the modalities?
Do you try DIY or would a professional be more helpful?
How long should you expect to wait before you experience improvement?
Will the improvement last?
Will it continue to improve until it’s all healed?
Pain can come from a variety of causes. It can be an acute situation – ie, it will heal in time – or it could be a chronic condition – ie with you for life.
Probably the most common cause of pain and inflammation is injury. Not just an injury from an accident or sports injury. It could be from lifting something awkwardly. It could be from a bite or another form of puncture wound.
It could also be from your genetic inheritance or as a result from a poor diet leading to a lack of nutrition. Or from a high toxic loading. Or a combination.
The cause as well as the type of pain experienced can be very personal and should be of the utmost importance when a prescription or therapy is considered.
This makes the situation altogether more complex than you may have considered. So working with a knowledgable professional is the wisest choice. This provides you with the guidance and support you need on your journey to full healing. When doing it yourself, you might feel you are progressing, but you’re actually going in the wrong direction for total healing.
So my first suggestion for anyone looking for natural remedies for pain and inflammation is to seek out a professional, rather than trying your hand. It’s beyond the scope of most people.
So what about the modality? Chiropractic? Bowen? Osteopathy? Yoga? Homeopathy?
Being a homeopath myself, I have to say I’m a bit biased, but let’s look at the others first. Chiros, Bowen therapists and osteopaths are all hands-on therapies. Homeopathy and yoga are the only hands-off therapies. Obviously you need to have a local therapist for the hands-on therapies. With yoga, you need a good teacher to get you started. But for homeopathy, you can consult a therapist by phone or skype. So it’s more flexible.
With the hands-on therapies you often need to go back for adjustments many, many times. Their recommended exercises can be useful, if rather slow to help. Yoga is great, but I suggest again, maybe rather slow for the seriously affected.
However, I believe, and this belief is supported by my clinical experience from those who have done many therapies, that by far the best approach for this condition is homeopathy. A good, knowledgable homeopath will be able to work out the best, most indicated homeopathic remedy that is individualised for your particular pain.
You will be able to re-dose yourself according to instructions, without going back for repeated consultations. The consultations are more likely to be weekly or monthly depending on the severity of the condition, rather than many times a week.
The result can be very fast.
The most effective, the most economical as well as the most rapid healing natural remedies for pain and inflammation is a well thought out, individualised, professional homeopathic treatment. Don’t skimp of this. Your health is too important.
